Letter: Teachers’ Unions: Exploited By Barghouti

Dear Letter to the Editor:

The teachers’ unions in San Francisco and Los Angeles that are supporting Omar Barghouti’s antisemitic genocidal BDS movement ignore the reality of Barghouti’s cause. (“War and Peace: The Shape of Teachers’ Anti Israel Drive“, Bruce Ticker, July 1, 2021). For Barghouti, the founder of BDS, “Boycott, Divest & Sanction” is just a euphemism for the destruction of Israel and its Jewish population. Barghouti has said the SOLE purpose of BDS is the euthanasia of Israel.

A student of history, Barghouti knows well that the Nazi T4 Euthanasia Program was the foundation of the final Solution of the Jews as enacted in the Wannsee Protocol in January to 1942. His use of the word euthanasia leaves no doubt that he founded BDS to continue the antisemitic eliminationist mission formalized by Reinhard Heydrich and Adolf Eichmann at the Wannsee Conference. 

By supporting BDS and its antisemitic genocidal foundation, the teachers unions in Los Angeles and San Francisco are goose-stepping in perfect harmony with their forerunner, the National Socialist Teachers League.
